Do you know anyone who suffer with Hyperemesis Gravidarum?
My daughter is pregnant with her second child, and she is terribly ill. This condition is much worse than normal morning sickness, and I’m wondering if anyone has experienced it, or can give me any tips on what she can do to keep food down. She hasn’t been able to keep even tablespoons of water down, and the medicine the doctors give her are of little help.
Her problems are way beyond what you would sip ginger ale and eat soda crackers for. She lost 20% of her body weight during her last pregnancy, and it looks like this one will be worse. she is only 7 and ½ weeks now, and already she has to go weekly to the doctor’s office for IV fluids to re-hydrate her.
Do you know anyone who has had this problem? What did they do?
